4.35/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Thanks to Sam's for this suggestion. Chilled and poured out into a nonic, just under one finger of creamy milk chocolate head develops. Lacing is already apparent and retention is decent. Body is black and completely opaque. First sniff is very complex, notes of figs, anise, raison, dirty cocoa, subtle hints of roasted walnuts maybe even coffee, but very faint and only in the back end. Hops are very subdued in the nose, I can detect them faintly, but can not detect which they are for sure. Taste is just as complex and delicious. The flavor is well shaped by bottle conditioning which has made wonderful space for many subtle nuances to become apparent. Roasted malt is more apparent in the flavor than in the smell same with the cocoa. Slightly fruity at first and then quickly taken over by the roasted malts, the subtle bitterness manifests toward the early middle and then again on the finish. The malt and hop balance is very good, its obviously malt forward, but the IBU was obviously not for gotten about. For me it could it could stay where it is, but it would be interesting to taste it 5 points back ward. ABV on is makes it not quite a session beer, but perfect to have two to three during a meal or just one for a snack. Mouth feel is wonderful perfect for the style, lots of complex big flavors, but not over done in the least. This is an excellent food beer as all good porters should be. I just ate some Gruyere with fig jam, great pairing, but obviously this would be great with barbecue or even spareribs. Its taken me a long time to get porters, but now I love them so dearly especially this one. Thank the Elfin lords it is brewed all year round.
